Prime Location Horsham Area Guide

Low crime, great schooling, economically robust, long life expectancy and repeated winner of the Britain in Bloom competition - it's no wonder that Horsham frequently makes the lists of top places to live in the UK. It's extremely popular as a place to raise a young family within commuting distance of the capital. Horsham is a market town at heart, with a quiet nightlife and a strong local sense of community. The town sits on the River Arun in West Sussex - 31 miles southwest of London and 18 miles northwest of Brighton. The town centres itself around the Carfax - the now pedestrianised merging point of four roads and the area's retail hub. The Carfax is home to several memorials, a controversial fountain, a well-used bandstand and a popular Saturday market.

The town has a long and rich past. Originally known for horse trading and then iron and brick making, the most interesting industry surviving in Horsham today is brewing. Within the town, housing is varied and the characteristically lovely Victorian semis with big gardens are quickly snapped up. Horsham is also known for its attractive suburbs - which are typically hamlets that have become absorbed into the outer neighbourhoods of the town itself. Littlehaven and Roffey have good reputations.

Demographics

Horsham has a population of about 55,550. It's a major commuter town, with strong links to London, Brighton and the nearby Crawley.

About 80% of the population are economically active, which is higher than the rest of the country.

Education

One of the main reasons for Horsham's popularity is its strong reputation for schooling. There are plenty of primaries, all scoring highly with Ofsted.

For secondaries, the co-ed Tanbridge gets rave reviews, while the single sex Forest (boys) and Millais (girls) are also popular options.

Transport

Horsham has great travel links to a couple of motorways, and lies at the junction of three main roads - the A24, the A264/29 and the A281. These connections make trips to the coast easy and quick.

Horsham railway station, in the centre of town, runs from Chichester, through Horsham to Crawley, Gatwick and into London Victoria. Gatwick Airport is 12 miles away; Heathrow is 40 miles away.

Amenities and shopping

The Carfax makes for a pleasantly well defined town centre. Although Horsham has many chain stores, it's retained just enough independents to keep its sense of identity. The Capitol (formerly Horsham Arts Centre) is a fun venue with a packed schedule and a theatre, a couple of cinema screens, a studio and a gallery.

To the north of the town centre lies Horsham Park - 24 hectares of green space dedicated to recreation. There's an excellent skate and BMX park to keep the local youth occupied.
